About

Concrete art and design - Made easy!

The Concrete Concrete Easy Make Kit allows you to marble and cast concrete objects in the comfort of your home! It includes everything you need to get started in the wonderful world of concrete art and design. No special tools or space is required with the Easy Make, just follow the instruction and in 24 hours you will make your very own amazing concrete objects.

Our Easy Make Concrete Kit has everything you need to make a marbled concrete cactus planter and a couple hex tiles or coasters.  

What does your funding provide?

We have developed a great prototype and we're now ready to run production. We want to make a nice box, add printed instructions, and give you easy to use packaging. In order to do so, we need a minimum production run of over 1000 units to do printing, mold making, and custom bagging. This helps us keep the price accessible for you!

Support from the Mayku Formbox 

We're incredibly fortunate to have the support of the Mayku Formbox team on this project. They've supplied us with a Formbox and materials to experiment with.  Their support staff taught us the tricks to thermoforming.  

Making things makes you feel good

Making things everyday has been an incredible emotional outlet. Every time I make something I get an incredible sense of fulfillment and accomplishment. I want to share that feeling with you!

Risks and challenges

The final mold designs are a challenge. We have had success with the prototypes but there's a big difference between a prototype and a production mold, this will be our biggest challenge. The next biggest risk is securing all our printing, boxing and bagging at a price that's within our budget.

Environmental commitments

Long-lasting design

The core of all Concrete Cat designs is the idea of generational design. Concrete is a material that has the potential to last for 1000 years, so you need a design that will also last in relevance as well!

Reusability and recyclability

We're dedicated to recyclable materials. Concrete is very low energy inputs to recycle, most of it is crushed and reconstituted into roads and other construction fill.

Sustainable materials

We use industrial hemp which is an agricultural byproduct to strengthen our mix.
